Reward offered in robbery case
Charles County Crime Solvers is offering a cash reward for in- formation leading to the identity and arrest of a suspect wanted in connection with a citizen robbery that occurred outside of a drugstore located at the corner of Leonardtown Road and St. Charles Parkway.
At 2:15 p.m. on Jan. 11, the vic- tim, a 72-year-old man, was walk- ing near the side of the store when he was approached by a male who asked for money. The victim agreed to help the man and pulled out his wallet. The suspect then grabbed the wal- let, assaulted the man and fled on foot. Officers canvassed the area and a K-9 team conducted a track. A review of security cameras revealed the suspect never entered the store. The suspect is described as a black male, possibly in his 20s, unknown height, slim build, wearing a brown jacket, dark sweatshirt and possibly work pants.
